Girls Night!

Saturday Night, February 25, 2017

On Mosaei Shabbat, over thirty girls from the youth minyan gathered in the בית כנסת for a night of fun creating high line jewelry, dinner and enjoying each other’s company. Rabbi Tawil addressed the girls, explaining to them the significance of their role in the Jewish nation and encouraging them to continue to involve themselves in all that the בית כנסת has to offer. All the girls had a great time. A special thanks to Mrs. Rachel Tawil for bringing her jewelry expertise and creating a great night of fun and art.
